Classic childrens book about a toy, plushie Rabbit named Bunny Blue who belongs to a little girl named Hope Ann. There are lots of other toys illustrated here, notably, a Black Mammy type doll who is similar to a Golliwog toy doll.
Bunny Blue has an adventure when he realizes that he's lost his beautiful Pink Satin Ribbon & goes on a night-time search to find it.
This is a scarce book.
There is no price printed on the book front.
It measures 4 7/8" X 6 7/16".
Very good condition with no writing, damages or odors. The hard covers are bright & clear. The cover corners have age 'rubs' as does the top & bottom edges of the binding, but not very noticeable.
I believe the illustrator also created a series of salt & pepper shakers called "Huggers".
